Our friend fancied a Chinese meal to celebrate her birthday. Although no reservation made we were welcomed and taken to our table, the dining area was quite as we had arrived at opening time, however the are soon began to fill as the evening progressed. The seats appeared to have been recovered since our visit earlier in the year and... More

We took a stroll and returned 20 minutes later and were shown to our table. We were given prawn crackers whilst waiting for starters then more crackers appeared with... More

an enjoyable dining experience, a tethered Chinese boat on the embankment. A friendly welcome awaits guests to this restaurant. a good choice of meals are available. A reasonable price to pay will suit most peoples pockets.

Having visited Peterborough on many occasions I found the Grain Barge to be consistently good. The staff are always friendly welcoming me back. The food is very nice, well presented and well priced.

Poor service. Not even 10 minutes in and we were asked to keep our kids quiet due to other customers. There was just one other table. If I had it my way, we would have left. Overpriced, food average and moody looking waitresses . I will not be going here again by choice.

Really enjoyed the fish set menu and the lobster to share was really delicious in the ginger and spring onion sauce. Service was good. The only reason why this restaurant does not get full five stars is because of two reasons. The first being the soft drinks served are quite flat, I know this is common for these type of... More
